Edward James Olmos Compares Riot-Ridden LA to Beirut

California, USA

20 years after the Los Angeles riots, actor/activist Edward James Olmos describes the scene to the Hollywood Reporter:

Actor and activist Edward James Olmos says Hollywood on Thursday night “looked like Beirut, like an all-out war going on.” Seeing someone in the street who had been shot in the headby a shop owner “broke my back,” Olmos says. “I almost ran over him with my car.”

I believe a “looks like Beirut” certificate is definitely in need.
